not just for kids?

So if I'm making  them for everybody else I figure I should have one for myself. I mean, i do need to stand behind my product!  At first I thought they were just too cute for kids but now I'm liking it for myself.
The pattern I'm using is just one I made up myself. In the beginning I started with a pattern but never got the sizing right because I would use different types of yarns and hooks.
So here is one I whipped up for myself. I wore it today out in public and i felt kinda spunky!  And a little immature but you know what? I love it. I think it turned out so cute and if I'm going to sale them then I think I need to wear one too! I made this one out of my favorite yarn lately, it's called Loops and Threads country ?  And on all the hats I've been making I have been stitching a half double crochet throughout. 
  soooo not just for kids?

And then I just finished another sock monkey hat, this was  a special order for my friend at work. I LOVE this! I'm getting faster and better with each hat. And I got another order today for 5 more sock monkey hats. I had to put together a waiting list! I'm about 2 weeks out!
Thanks for visiting, click here to see more of my hats!
And I'm linking up to these parties:

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!
